He also led Schalke 04 to semi-finals of UEFA cup in year 2005–06. On 13 April 2008, the club management of Schalke 04 released Slomka from his obligations after several weak performances of the team.[4] He was given a lifeline when his side knocked out Primeira Liga Champions Porto 4–1 on penalties after a 1–1 draw on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League, but Schalke 04 were knocked out in the next round by Barcelona 2–0 on aggregate, and the final spell for him was a humiliating 5–1 defeat at the hands of title rival Werder Bremen.

Hannover 96[edit]

On 19 January 2010, Slomka became new manager of Hannover 96.[5] In the 2010–11 Bundesliga, Slomka led Hannover to a record fourth place finish, thus qualifying for the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League. In the play-off round, Hannover clinched a victory over Sevilla with a 2–1 win at home, followed by a 1–1 draw away (3–2) and qualified for the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League group stage. Slomka was sacked on 27 December 2013.[6]

Hamburger SV[edit]

On 16 February 2014, it was reported that Slomka became head coach of Hamburger SV pending the approval of the supervisory board.[7] It was approved and announced the following day.[8] He was given a contract until 2016.[8] He is the 13th head coach of Hamburg since 2004.[9] Slomka's first match in charge was a 3–0 win over Borussia Dortmund.[10] Slomka was able to pick up two more victories (1. FC Nürnberg and Bayer Leverkusen).[11] He didn't pick up a single point over the final five matches of the league season. This includes losses to Hannover 96, VfL Wolfsburg, FC Augsburg, Bayern Munich, and 1. FSV Mainz 05.[11] Dispite not picking up any points over this period, 1. FC Nürnberg and Eintracht Braunschweig were unable to catch Hamburg and they finished the season in 16th place,[11] which led to a relegation–promotion play–off against Greuther Fürth. In the relegation–promotion play–off, the first leg ended in a 0–0 draw[12] and the second leg ended in a 1–1 draw.[13] The result meant that Hamburg avoided relegation.[13]
